Never heard of an O2 simulator.
O2 sensors are vital to keep your A/F ratio correct.
I don't think you'd want to just simulate them being there.

That was my thought exactly. But the way I was headed today I was gonna leave it for you. Lmao.
The only logical reason to delete an o2 would be for a carb conversion. And in that case you can just remove them.

Doubt the electric ones would do any good, might try these if you're intent on it.

Basically a way to limit what your o2 sensors read to compensate for the lack of converters. Still allows them to function.

I'm thinking that you don't want to limit what the O2 sensors are reading on any 86-95?

Ahh, So those are for the newer Mustang's with 4 - O2 sensors, two of which are after the catalytic converters.
Now it makes sense.

I completely forgot the sensors were before the converters. Been so long since I've seen a stock mid pipe.

Believe me I can relate.
Sometimes I find that I have forgotten the simplest basic stuff about these cars.....

If I'm not mistaken those o2 sims would only be for replacing the rear o2 sensor after the cat. It feeds the computer a false relatively steady voltage so the computer thinks the cats are working properly so it doesn't turn on the MIL light.

That's correct.
